It was nice to work a tomato soup into the challenge. This one was a little heavy on the orzo (and the grilled cheese croutons were cute but not as satisfying as a sandwich), but it was still a nice winter dinner.
This is one of those classic Internet recipe blunders where someone changes a main ingredient and gasp! the recipe doesn’t really work right. But I’m noting this because I do want to make this recipe the original way at some point. Basically, I somehow burned the wild rice I was making for this, so I had to sub in white rice instead. I felt like the rice turned out a little gluey and it wasn’t saved by the casserole.
Really into this recipe from Smitten Kitchen (I’ve been wanting to try it for awhile and finally got inspired after we got eggplant in the Hungry Harvest delivery). I think this will make it to our meatless meals rotation pretty regularly. I like the hands-off aspect of roasting the tofu/eggplant.
I’m very excited to have Andrea Nyguen’s new cookbook, and this was the first thing I made out of it. Great tofu recipe!
